New & Better! How?

The latest run of Pro Classics are SO beautiful. The attention to detail is truly impressive. But meticulous construction is just the start.

The materials used on the newest MHT pro classics are top notch. The body is quarter sawn Honduran Mahogany, an expensive mahogany used for the best musical instruments. Hawaiian koa binding frames off the top and back of the body. The bridge and the fretboard  are ebony and the faceplate are Macassar ebony. The tuners are machined perfect for smooth use and long term stability. The nut and saddle are bone, and the wooden case is a newer more durable design.

Their is a slight curve to the fingerboard, nut, and saddle. This is what we are referring to as the fretboard radius. It makes chording easier and allows for low action and an extra sweet feel. This wonderful feel compliments a tone that truly sings. A full bodied sound with clarity and warmth, this is the classic mahogany tenor sound at it's best. Ko'olau is very exacting and the results are impressive! This is an instrument to love and cherish for life!

A key feature in all of the Pono tenor and baritone models is the dual-action adjustable truss rod. This is used to stabilize and adjust the lengthwise forward curvature (also called relief), of the neck. It can be adjusted from right inside the sound-hole with an allen wrench provided. This is something you will probably not need to adjust. But over time and with humidity changes, it is a very useful option to have, and a very easy thing to adjust with little room for error.
